Hello. I have been on the house-caring journey since 2012. Starting out as a sitter for a vacation home in a small, rural pueblo in Costa Rica for three years. Staging and eventually selling that home, I continued on for the next four years by word of mouth referral due to my natural affinity for a disciplined lifestyle, strong work ethic and excellent communication skills. My ability to adapt to and adopt new systems rapidly, speak spanish and integrate with the local community quickly and genuinely have been integral to continued success.
I have been back in the USA since June, 2019 passing through New Mexico, Texas, Ohio, Georgia and Florida with five-star reviews in every state.
I have owned and maintained several properties from a five-acre lot near Wickenburg, AZ that needed irrigation repairs and a fire border during a summer drought to a 2,400 sq. ft. suburban home in an upscale gated community in San Antonio, TX that simply required someone to be present for regularly scheduled maintenance.
My experience includes everything from preservation of ocean front primary rainforest property in Uvita, Costa Rica to tropical storm preparation lakeside in the marshlands of Coastal, GA. Grounds care, and grounds care coordination + pool and pond care in a natural sanctuary in Thomasville, GA and, as you can imagine--plenty of humbling and challenging surprises no one could prepare for along the way!
I prefer minimum 3 mo. placements and am happy to help with cleaning/marketing a rental property in exchange for a % of the income.
Rest assured, your home/investment property will be well cared for. Sweeping and dusting are two of my favorite pass times. I can also be counted on for inspecting and addressing weather, locale-related risks like leaks, mold, insects, etc. and/or hiring a professional as needed.
I've lived in some of the most beautiful places in the world and learned that each area presents its own set of challenges--with unique solutions for almost every situation. I first look to you the owner or professional for direction. Then, I look for what is an emergency and what is a cyclical balance of nature. I've found it's better to live with the natural surroundings as far is reasonable and let them work for us wherever possible.
If you understand this concept and others like it, we will get along great!
I know from experience multiple-home ownership can be a source of joy as well as anguish. It's my job to make it more of the former.
Call or e-mail anytime to start a dialog about what it is you need and what I can do about it.
As I tell my clients: I'll be here, wherever here might be.
All the very best!
Review from Linda F. - New Mexico
If you are looking for a house sitter you can trust who brings warmth, care, focused responsibilities to your home Jessica is that person. She not only treats my home with loving care, she is affectionate toward my cat and sends me photos, leaving my home as nicely as when I left or better. If she is not sure about something she will text me and keep in contact lightly for updates.
I highly recommend Jessica for she is trustworthy and my mind is at peace when she is here.
